I guess it's the 1/2 ton axles that make it so elusive!! Not to bash someone else's truck but I sure hope he has some kind of block off plates sealing those factory cab light holes, can you imagine how much moisture could be entering there if not.

1972 K-30, belonged to a friend of mine, I almost bought it from him back around 1997 when this picture was taken. It had Cheyenne 30 emblems on it, is it possible? a K-30 Cheyenne Super?

Re: K20/K30's only! Pics please :)

could be a cab swap if the VIN has a 3 in it to a K20 frame, or it's simply 30 emblems on a 20. I'm obviously not an expert (considering the title of this post, by me) but I've been subsequently schooled that there is no such animal, i.e K and 30...

Regardless, that is an absolutely beautiful truck. Made my day!

Re: K20/K30's only! Pics please :)

Here is my project. Shes not much now.. but hopefully will within a year.

Plans - Tilt, Tach, Air, 40 gal burb tank to feed the 396, and fresh paint.. have a cab to swap onto it. still not decided on orange/white or blue/white... im starting to lean more towards orange..Even more now after the pic of 72KAY20's truck!



When i bought it.. first thing i did was ditch these wheels. Not my cup-o-tea





check out my build log, just click "Rusty" in my sig.

I'd have to see it to know just what he did,but that would be a "built" K/30,not factory. First of all,GM didn't make a 127" WB 1t frame. It it was factory it would be a Longhorn. I had a friend in Idaho years ago who had a Longhorn 4wd that I thought was factory till I knew better. The early Dana 60 front axles did use Spicer lockouts. I'd love to find a set for the Dana 60 going under my K2500. That Highlander was going to get the K/30 (axle) treatment that the Sierra is getting. I had Custom/30 emblems for it. Now I have Custom Camper 3500 or another 3500 fender emblem with nothing else on it...both N.O.S.,for the Sierra.

Re: K20/K30's only! Pics please :)

This has been my farm workhorse for over 20 years. I just bought a new Silverado 2500HD and I still felt much more comfortable in my 72 GMC to get me through the worst storm this winter here. It got me through a blizzard to and from work in the middle of the night and over 100 miles of closed highway and interstate without a hickup. Drove around many suvs and cars stranded in the middle of the road.

Re: K20/K30's only! Pics please :)

this truck didn't leave the factory as a K20, it is now and i have it badged properly too.



it didn't have one of these when i bought it. it took a few months to find and build one.







it took 2 Dodges to get 1 Chevy home.

I love that GMC and HOTFUN's as well! i want another GMC!

Gm dana 60s never had external hubs. they were always been internal. they did have spicer hubs, but they look nothing like the ones on the K20 D44s. early dodge dana 60s 76-89ish had a large external hub, but never a style of lockout that is like the K20 that i am aware of. i had a set of the GM D60f spicers on my GM 60 i swapped for the 78-79 RC60 in my green truck now.

the blue and white truck has a D44 front. i'm betting it had badges swapped to say "30"
